L-Theanine Gummies

My guest is Dr. David Spiegel MD, Associate Chair of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Director of the Center on Stress and Health and Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Spiegel has over 40 years clinical and research experience in hypnosis and stress physiology. This episode examines the role of clinical Hypnosis in the treatment of anxiety, chronic pain, trauma, and other conditions. Dr. Spiegel will explain how to determine your level ‘hypnotizability’. He also provides case studies that show the incredible results of hypnosis in treating a wide range of conditions. We also discuss how vision, breathing and directed mental focus can affect internal states and improve performance. We also discuss how self-hypnosis can be used to reduce stress and improve sleep. Dr. Spiegel shows us how hypnosis works at a neural circuit level to increase cognitive flexibility. Dr. Spiegel summarizes key clinical trials, peer-reviewed findings, and resources for working with a trained clinical professional.
